Christmas Money Saving Tips

With the cost of living causing concern in the UK, here are a few ways to cut back on your Christmas spending without sacrificing any of the magic…

Less is More – We can be tempted to go a little overboard and spend money that we don’t really have at Christmas. However, a few quality items like this irish cap are not only better for the environment than mounds of novelty gifts, but better for your finances too!

Alternative Decorations – If you don’t want to spend a fortune on your electricity bill with fairy lights this year, then why not use solar lights to decorate your home? Or for a traditional Christmas look, use candles and go foraging outdoors for seasonal greenery to use as decorations.

Get Creative – Homemade gifts always go down well – there are lots of things that you can do, whether you want to make a delicious homemade treat in the kitchen, or perhaps a personalised photo frame with a picture that the recipient will love. Homemade gifts are from the heart.

Stock up Early – If you buy things early you are able to spread the cost. Leaving everything until the last minute can also result in you not being able to get what you want, so set aside some money each month to get a few different things.

Activities for Free – There are lots of Christmas activities that can cost a fortune, but you can do things that are free too. Walking through a winter woodland is magical at this time of the year.
